I've been able to clip them in on the old mudguard so they don't appear to rub, but that is a great tip. I'll have a look for some of that stuff.

Just had a lovely longer ride on the bike today. Managed to get the fuel reserve light on, so will now be able to get tank off easily and strip the rear end of the bike down. I'll stick it on the Abba Stand and make a go of things from then.

"Helicopter Tape".

That's the name I couldn't remember. It's used on the leading edge of helicopter blades to protect against sand erosion and similar.

Or at the cheap end of the spectrum B&Q were selling some very heavy clear tape for taping together polythene for under laminate flooring
Its tough, pretty clear and cheap. I put some on my carbon pushbike forks to stop them getting scuffed. Its holding my ZZR plastics together too.
